I'm sorry. I made a mistake in asking my previous question. I meant to ask how big around the bottom of the pant legs are on a size 16 misses. Also, are the misses sizes longer in the seat than the petites? I'm 5'4" and am afraid that the petites would be too short in the legs for me as I like my pants to come all the way down to my shoes. Another style of the bendover pants comes in a 28 inch length and it is just about right, but the petites in this style are listed as 27 inches long and I'm afraid that would be too short.
BEST ANSWER: Size 16:
Leg Opening - 8 1/4"
Both the front and back rise will be longer in Misses
